The rains started earlier than normal, leaving our various utility trenches a mess. Ken complicated matters by pulling our new water service off of the water main with the little excavator he rented. The public utility guy in orange was not amused.
Ken borrowed Garth and Lisa's tractor. He rode his bike to their farm and then drove it back with the bike in the bucket, much to the amusement of other drivers on the roads. George (on the right below) hard at work scraping our new driveway.
Success celebrated with a beer after cutting into and replacing our sewer line. The plumber wanted $1,300 to do it once I got the pipe isolated from the ground. It took me 5 minutes to cut out the old and put in the new once I had isolated the pipe. Heck of an hourly rate.
